The demand for scientific, technical, and engineering librarians has always been great and remains so today. Job opportunities are abundant for individuals with master's degrees in library and information science combined with undergraduate preparation in the sciences. Openings exist in academic, industrial, and non-profit environments. The joint B.S./M.S. program seeks to provide a pool of appropriate candidates for positions in these areas.

Degree Candidacy

B.S./M.S. students would be eligible for degree candidacy upon completion of their first three-credit course, once enrolled in the Master's program, since they will have already completed six SLIS graduate credits in the undergraduate minor.
